This was the song of the 1920's it was a dance, a song, an idea, and also for many in the 1920's a way of life. The song seems to move us to the days of speakeasy's and the wild ride that became the roaring 20's.

Formed in 2000, Lady Bombon is a boy and a girl from Mexico City who use samplers, rhythm boxes, keyboards and guitars to make a brilliant and strange new rhythm fusion. Chuchelas (the boy) and Hongo (the girl) blend punk, pop, roc, and electro, inspired by the 80s and 90s sounds they both grew up listening to. Originally, the two made music just for fun, as something that relaxed them, but after they recorded their first demo and gave it to friends, they realized it could be something more...

Music, in all its forms, has long been a part of the domestic, religious, and social life of the Slovenes. With the spread of Christianity in the 5th century, liturgical hymns were introduced in the region they later inhabited. Secular songs can be traced back to the 9th century. The first director of the Vienna Boys Choir, established in 1498, was the Slovenian scholar, composer, and choirmaster Jurij Slatkonja, who also served as leader of the emperor’s musicians and as Bishop of Vienna....

"Castle House Rag - One Step", performed by Europe's Society Orchestra, recorded "under the personal supervision of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle" on February 10, 1914. James Reese Europe was an important musical figure in the ragtime era (his band was the first Black band to record commercially). Vernon and Irene Castle were early popularizers of social dancing to syncopated music. From the original 12" 78rpm disk.

The fourth release from electronic musician Adhesion. Originally conceived as an attempt at 7 Album-A-Days in 7 days, it quickly degenerated in a mad rush to reach the goal of 140 minutes. The whole project, from start to finish, took 11 days instead of the planned 7. The result is a double album that defies classification, crossing through genres like downtempo, ambient, techno, trance and noise. More info: http://www.evilresidence.com

Even if I am a collector of "serious" opera recordings on 78 rpm, I am also much faszinated of the diversity of genres and discoveries you can make in the field of popular music recordings. In addition to my collection  Emilio's 78 Heritage I will give here an overlook over the many facets and genres of recorded "popular" sound and music since the beginning of sound recording to the end of the shellack era in the 1950ies. It also includes much about operetta, which...
